If Yorkshire were a country it would be tenth in the medal table with five golds, the same as Germany and ahead of Holland. No doubt SAS would explain it as Yorkshire folk having better genes.

I blame Thatcher shutting down the coalmines.

My Bro Tweeted me that Bolton (our home town) has produced more Gold Medals than India, Spain and some other shiit country put together...

It's because the flout the drug rules by their own special Yorkshire methods.

They avoid drug test detection by injecting ecstacy directly into the skin around the teeth.

This is known locally as 'E By Gum' :laugh

There's also the anal probe administration known as "Bloody Norah".

Eh? When have I ever seriously subscribed to the genetic superiority theory?
I think it's because the lazy twats don't have any jobs allowing them to take t'lottery cash for training in their vast spare time, innit?

It's due to our genetic superiority of course from generations of fighting the vikings and hurdling dry stone walls for training.

If 'pitch fork dueling' and 'welly wanging' were recognised Olympic events Somerset would be imperious.

If they had six fingered pencil spinning dexterity then Devon would win Gold with Shaunbhoy.

The Answer is, more money is pumped into Scotland on a per capita basis than anywhere else in the United Kingdom.

Free bloody prescriptions and university education FFS! :tantrum:

Before devolution:
Taxes collected by London.
Public expenditure disbursed by London.
No special movement of funds necessary.

After devolution:
Taxes still collected by London.
Public expenditure largely disbursed by Edinburgh.
Obviously therefore, movement of funds from London to Edinburgh needed.
That's Scottish tax money going off for a trip to London, before coming back again.


Scots get free prescriptions and university education because the Scottish government has decided these are good things to spend their money on - not because they spend English money on them.

Oh BTW, there's a good way to lay all those arguments to rest, and I'll be voting for it in the referendum.

Does that leave them short so they have to come cap in hand back to London to pay for other stuff?

The rest of the UK does so I can't see Scotland being any different.

Is it because there are too many public schools in Yorkshire?

Rather ask what England spends its money on instead of free university education. But that's a choice for the English: if you want free university education, elect a government that will implement it.

Big smart shiny new velodromes where Scots can win back the gold that Gordon Brown flogged off at the bottom of the market.

Those who have attended public school are the elite and have better genes.

We hate each other's gut when on our own territories, but when we are down south or abroad we usually unite against the common enemy.

This is true for most grouping, except the Scots. They'll unite with anyone who's against the English.

That reminds me of a comment in one of Ian Rankin's books. Although the Scots detest cricket they will watch an England match and cheer on the other side.
